Corrie can be found 260 meters up into the Drumbarton Hill between Tepersie Castle, to the west, and South Warrackston Farm, to the east and on the Suie road (Clatt-Tullynessle). It is quite a steep climb but on a day like today its fantastic, quite warm but windy, sunny and scenery for miles and miles. Carefully cross a couple of barbed wire fences and some whin bushes. Some words of warning, today smoke appeared from nowhere and I accidentally wandered into it, as the wind changed direction. Smouldering bales were amongst the whins and bushes were beginning to spark into life as I made my way back down the hill.

This is called a cairn, it certainly has been "battered" and ruined, but I feel sure that at some stage this was a RSC. The large stone standing is like a normal recumbent, with several cup marks. It has become part of the dyke by being moved from its original position. Another stone stands and is being used as a gatepost that holds up barbed wire fences.
